This week Boston Globe senior op-ed writer Kimberly Atkins Stohr joins Farai to discuss the latest findings – and potential government involvement – in the January 6 insurrection investigation. Our host then speaks candidly with OBP senior producer Bianca Martin about Farai’s 30 year journey as a field reporter who focuses on the challenges to democracy and society, and who predicted the 2021 political violence. Their conversation leads us back 12 years to Farai’s radio documentary “Pop & Politics Radio.” Traveling hundreds of miles through Arizona during the 2010 midterm election, Farai and the documentary producers saw how many of today’s political battles began to take shape, laying groundwork for the 2021 insurrection.
